Demonstration of baroque riding art

A programme of 45 minutes, which is a guided tour through living history. All kinds of riding art will be presented: the Lady´s saddle, the “schools above the earth”, the “applied riding art” with the wonderful stallions from all baroque breeds – all this will be explained by one of the riders. Changing horses, breeds and topics makes the Demonstration of baroque riding art all year round a pulsating programme.

This is the most often booked programme for groups and single travellers, a programme which can be integrated easily in your course of events. You can also combine the Show with a visit in our stables and the museum, and also with the castle and the restaurant.

Guided Tours through the stables and the museum


We offer guided tours through the historical stables and the museum on several dates throughout the year. The guides, dressed in baroque costumes, clearly and entertaining explain the exhibits as well as the different display cases in the museum, all with many anecdotes and profound knowledge. They talk about riding culture, baroque breeds and about the horse itself while discovering the historical stables.
We offer guided tours with a duration of 45 minutes as well as the possibility to discover the courtly school of riding backstage – a look “behind the scenes” with a duration of 60 minutes.
